This is an Islay Single Malt Whisky that’s an assault on your senses. So if you refuse to conform to the rules of normal whisky drinking, and are seeking out something more uncommon, then according to the team that make it: "here’s where that pig-headed inquisitiveness of yours gets rewarded."
Alluringly leftfield, yet enticingly off kilter, Smokehead is custom built for outsiders who will happily walk across fields of burning peat to find something real, something authentic, something unusual. Something that fits them perfectly. Salty and seaweedy, peppery and peaty, smoky and sweet, Smokehead is definitely that. And defiantly not for everyone.
The aroma of something powerful and fiery awaiting you. Thick, heavy woodsmoke. Rich, earthy peat. Extremes of spice and sweetness. Fresh lemon, zesty ginger, rich plum jam. The flavour gives an explosion of breathtaking peppery, peaty heat, soothed by honeyed sweetness, before the smoke comes to the fore again. The finale of this whisky brings exotic spices and a curious citrus tang of mandarin, both lulling you into a false sense of calm as the peat roars back to hit your senses again.
